Department of Health & Welfare, Resource & Service Navigation

The Angels provide regular funding for rent and utilities support to the local Resource and Service Navigation department of Idaho Health and Welfare. This funding supports Bonner County residents who need assistance beyond what other area resources can offer. Due to the Angel’s involvement, many other local community resource providers are willing to collaborate to ensure that applicants’ needs are met. This collaborative approach has made a difference in MANY lives.

Priest River Ministries, Advocates for Women

The Angels provide regular funding for Priest River Ministries-Advocates for Women, the only shelter program for domestic and sexual violence in Bonner County with offices in both Sandpoint and Priest River. The Angels’ funds are used to shelter women and children and provide transportation service so survivors can escape violent situations, attend medical or legal appointments or school, and visit the grocery store. These clients are extremely vulnerable and rely on support to turn their lives around and avoid further abuse.

If you are in need of these services, please contact the Priest River Ministries at (208) 290-6529.
